Don’t Dream It’s Over by Crowded House – Lyrics with Chords (with capo on 3rd fret)

Verse

C                                                 Am
There is freedom within, there is freedom without
F                                                                           E
Try to catch the deluge in a paper cup
C                                                   Am
There’s a battle ahead, many battles are lost
F
But you’ll never see the end of the road
E
While you’re travelling with me

Chorus

F                    G
Hey now, hey now
C                                  Am
Don’t dream it’s over
F                    G
Hey now, hey now
C                                  Am
When the world comes in
F                    G
They come, they come
C                                  Am
To build a wall between us
F
We know they won’t win

Verse

C                                                    Am
Now I’m towing my car, there’s a hole in the roof
F                                                                         E
My possessions are causing me suspicion but there’s no proof
C                                         Am
In the paper today tales of war and of waste
F                                                                            E
But you turn right over to the T.V. page

Chorus

F                       G
Hey now, hey now
C                                  Am
Don’t dream it’s over
F                       G
Hey now, hey now
C                                  Am
When the world comes in
F                       G
They come, they come
C                                  Am
To build a wall between us
F
We know they won’t win

Verse

C                                                              Am
Now I’m walking again to the beat of a drum
F                                                                            E
And I’m counting the steps to the door of your heart
C                                                              Am
Only shadows ahead barely clearing the roof
F                                                                            E
Get to know the feeling of liberation and relief

F                       G
Hey now, hey now
C                                      Am
Don’t dream it’s over
F                       G
Hey now, hey now
C                                         Am
When the world comes in
F                       G
They come, they come
C                                         Am
To build a wall between us
F
Don’t ever let them win

Outtro
